Finally finished up my new 598 last week. Spent Friday afternoon on the dyno getting it broken in and tuned for the most part.

Ok, here we go with some results and build details.

I'm happy with it. Not bragging, but nothing to keep secret either. My goal was 1050 hp and 900 ft lbs of torque using a single cast 4V intake. Made that with some room to spare. I realize I could have made more with a nice tunnel ram intake, but that would have complicated the packaging in the car. This is not a max effort deal. Just a reliable, low maint piece. No Ti valves, no shaft rockers, no crazy valve springs, etc.

The HP flattens out after 6400, but doesn't drop. That tells me there is a airflow bottleneck. I think it's the intake. It's almost box stock. Smoothed up the casting a little about 1" into each runner and cut the clover leaf out of the top as it was an obvious restriction to my Terminator throttle body. On the first freshen up I may send the intake for some Pro porting.

Larger 721K version for if you can't read this one well:

Got it home today. It had a couple of minor oil leaks on the dyno. All fixed now.

It was an honor to be involved in such a cool project. David has helped a lot with ideas and suggestions to make my little parts even better.
I can't wait to see it flying down the track.
Nice job!

It's been a good one so far. Happy with it. I'm sure it makes more power now than it did on the dyno via on track tuning. It's about 5 mph faster in the 1/8 now vs the tune it had on the dyno (left dyno tune on it when first put in car). Some of that was in the converter (prob 2mph) with about 3 mph in tuning on the fuel system.

Best so far NA of 5.22 @ 134, 1.15 60' at 2955 lbs. Launch at 4400, converter flashes 6250, shift at 7K, cross at 7100. Would prob have more if I leaned on it a bit, especially on the launch rpm.

It's running fine. Only plans for the off season is new valve springs and have the Morel lifters rebuilt for piece of mind.
